That does it! I'm keeping these fine alpaca boot socks for myself, then! Youse guys' feet would just roast in them, to no good purpose. I, on the other hand, would prop them up in front of the firepla ... oh, oops, nevermind!

Know any stalkers w/ size L feet anybody?Click image for larger version

Are you following us? Well, we passed through Choctaw today. We are now located at the Durant/Choctaw KOA (Casino) We need to spend some pennies. We leave here on the 6th for Northlake Village RV Park, Roanoke, TX and will be there for 4 nights - in case anyone is in the area.



Bob,we have stayed at Oasis RV park in Amarillo twice and also attended the outdoor play "Texas" and it was very good. However it relies on college students and the season is May through August.

Is there a technique for shoveling gravel? I have only managed to move 2.5 wagon loads so far and can’t seem to get motivated. I did learn that a full wagon load is really hard to pull and impossible to dump so I’m now only filling it half full. I have a great Gorilla Cart that makes it a little easier, but I just can’t find a rhythm take makes me want to keep at it. Di, how did you get yours moved?

And don’t bother to tell me to get a tractor. It ain’t happening.

I used to dump it in piles about a foot high, and rake it down. Got rake? Garden rake, very stiff.
Smaller piles, less grunting.
Gorilla tape does apply to this function.
No, I donít grunt anymore.
I hear Tim is an accomplished grunter

The raking I have experience at. It’s the shoveling that I can’t get into. I have a good bow rake and have learned the value of wearing leather work gloves.

I raked 4 yards of gravel into place at DD's house this summer. But the distance here is closer to 200 ft, a lot more than the 20’ for the RV pad. I have to shovel it into the wagon for transport.

Our day? Tell about our day? Really? Right then.

Loaded Florence Cornelia for a week at the Thor Diesel Club rally in Goshen, IN.

Washed dishes. Watered all the plants. Rescued one pumpkin from the squirrels & young hooligan raccoons. Too late for the big pumpkin.

Supper in the house. TV in the rig. Designed a page for Inktober. Overnight in the rig to leave in the morning.

No puppies, no trains closer than 1/2 mile, no museums. Actually, it was a great day anyway.

Alpaca boots? Alpacas in boots? No, ya gotta read *all* them words: alpaca boot *socks*. Meant for humans, warmer than wool, not for the hot-footed. Sheesh!

See y'all down the road again!

Will now be headed to hospital, son and DIL are there waiting on the storke. That will be #8 Grand. Son said get some sleep it might be a while according to the Dr. Sleep, right, were up bright and early and Mary's already dressed. Got to go!

Our plans

A week from today we head for our digs in Ruskin, FL for about a 6 month stay at our park model. Lots of changes at our site and park. Can only hope that our sectionn of the park is not affected by the electrical SNAFU.

Come see us if you're in the area. We know several that are, or will be, in the area.

I'm not sure why you have to shovel it except to put it in the wheelbarrow. Once you move the wheelbarrow to its location, flip it over on its side to sort of spread out, or, tip forward while backing up. Then use the 16 or so tine rake to spread it. Back flat side of the rake to spread and tine side to smooth out the spread.

Or, sit Sena by the pile and let her throw rocks. How long would that take her to spread the pile.

Enjoy yourself young ones. Maybe one day we just might camp on your porch.

You know our abode is always open when we are there.
